Alexandra Times. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY "Veritas Vincit Omnia." FRIDAY, MAY, 20, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 26 May 1871

PUB ISHIED EVERY YRIDAY " Yerltus Vilncle Omlsadl.'" FlIDA)Y, MAXY, 20, 1871. -FPtoAr pitnlu,'pestiloidno nod baMtii, gooid Lord deliver us," is a prayer so often used, that one not a:onstomed to the Church of England service would be apt to come to the conclusion that those scourges of the human finaily were always hanging over our heads. Strict sanatory regulations and an improved systemn of agriculture by a judicious rotation of crops and thorough drainage, havo done much to avert thoso evils, and thereby saved many tlhousand human lives. Whilst we 'havo no immedi, ate cause for alarm from the evils of plague, pestilence, and famine, there is a more dan gerous enemy steadily ,at work ina almost every lhouse in Victoria, which has been described as "Death in the pot." Bad cooking wastes more money and sends more people to on onaly grave than all the plaguesi pestilence, or famine, that have ever visited the eartl. As eating is a very important part of every individual's business i...

DURHAM GULLY, SPRING CREEK., (From our own Correspondeni) Some little anxiety is at present prevailing amongst the minors here as to the result of: a now shaft sunk in the deep ground.on Spring :Creek, Swift and party are the prospectors, and the sinking as 45 feet, with. a little water. they have stank a well, and, are now driving north and south to catch the gutter of the Ilope claim, which for merly yielded from 3 to 4 dwt to the load, with three feet of washdirt.

Mlaes.r Briggs and Kinnear's tender for L135 being. the lowest was accepted. A long, useless discussion arose as to whether, an aleration should be made in the. conditions of con- tract, making the penalty L2 per day, in stead of 10s for every day -after six weeks that the work was not completed. Mr Whitelaw contended that it was of the greatest importance that there should be no delay, as the Commission on Hospitals had recommended that no hospital should in future be supported by Government that   was within a radius of 40 miles of another hospital, and that a 10s penalty was no gua- rantee for the speedy completion of the work: That the contractors could only de- mand their deposit money back if they did not choose to bind th...

THE LATE WILLIA I BON, ESQ. -4-C-- The remains ot this gentleman were con-. veyed to their last resting place. on Monday last. Although it was ruining heavily du. ring the morning, almost every old resi-. dent within a radius of 30 miles assembled to Iuy the last trim,uto of respect to one who had been idontifiaed with their early settle. mont in the district. By the deceased gon. tleman's request, his body was buried within about 50 yards of his private dwelling. The corpse was enclosed in a galvanized iron shell, hermetically soldeul, and covered with a richly-mounted coffin. The Church of England burial service was read by the Rev. Mr Toomath, and as. thl friends of the deceased stood around the grave with their heads uncovered, it was something very remarkable to see so many gentlemen mrth grey hairs gathered together. Several these commenced: their colonial life 30 and 35 years ago, and there was a grand patriarchal look about the group tha. would have made a fine subject for a...

PUnLISHED EVERY i lrDAY "VerlitL VLtncts Omneala.". FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1871. Tliz question ofseparation of a large portion of the Morton subdivision of the Alexandra Shire ii again started in a new form.

General lowo anil Corporal Nolan are in charge of the field. and send us a challenge to surrender, which appeared in a previous issue. Our Shire Councillors, either from inca parcity, indifference, or somo other inexcusable reason, have hitherto been like the .' dumb dogs" that were set l.p to watch the towers of Jerusalem, more ornamental than useful.
